Great food, disturbing atmosphere

Visited Waldo Peppers on a Friday night and was seated right away. Had 3 different servers ask for our drink order. Ordered a huge Waldo Mammoth burger. It tasted great. The only issue was that they allowed other guests to constantly wonder the restaurant and it felt like we were being circled by... read more

We keep trying this place due to the location and so many big flat screens but the food is frozen and fried. If the food was a little better it could be a gold mine!

a party of 14 didn't want to go in after several went in and walked out. there wasn't a sound in the place and when you open the door everybody turned to looked and turned back to their drinks. This must be the locals only place. It located in a strip mall that is on its last leg of the... More

Not worth the decent food & atmosphere. $8 bruschetta--or $2 each? Seriously? I had a burger; my wife a salad. We each had a beer. $50+. It wasn't that tasty. If you have to add salt to your burger, something's wrong.

We thought we would stay local and eat so we headed over to Waldo Peppers. Now when you live right on Lake Erie, you expect fresh perch, especially at $19.00 for 3 fillets, french fries and a salad. Boy was I wrong. My meal arrived with tiny fillets of perch? (about the size of pond sunfish) that should have been... More

Nice menu from snacks to entrees. Try the duck wings! Rotating craft beer selections. Personable service staff.

the staff is great, the atmosphere is great, but if your just going to cook a steak your way don't ask me how I want it. this used to be my favorite place in that area. but I have such bad luck in restaurants I don't give second chances.

Tired after a long travel day and wanted a place that was close to our hotel (Holiday Inn Express). The menu selection is varied and should please all appetites. The Lake Erie perch sandwich was really good but think I could have skipped the bun and just savored the fresh fish. Good and fast service.
